Ingredients

For the Papaya Salad

  • 1 large wooden mortar
  • 600g green, unripe papaya – peel and cut lengthwise into thin strips with a strip peeler
  • 300g green asparagus – cut off the ends; peel the rest
  • 80g carrot – peel and cut lengthwise into thin strips
  • 1 1/2 red chili pepper – remove the seeds and cut into rings
  • 4 tbsp peanuts – roast fat-free
  • 5 tbsp coarsely chopped cilantro

For the dressing

  • 50ml lime juice
  • 4 tbsp tamari (soy sauce)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp yacon syrup (if needed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamarind paste
  • 1 stalk of lemongrass – remove the outer layer; cut the rest into fine rings
  • 4 tbsp Amino coconut seasoning sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon nori seaweed, ground – grind a piece of seaweed leaf in a mortar

In the original, a fermented fish sauce is often used. To get a similarly intense aroma, we used the coconut seasoning sauce together with seaweed powder.

Instructions

This Thai Papaya salad is a delicacy for those who enjoy Thai cuisine. Its delightful combination of fruity and spicy flavors creates a refreshing and authentic taste.

Step 1

For the papaya salad, first puree all the ingredients for the dressing in a blender.

Step 2

Soften the papaya strips in the wooden mortar.

Then add the asparagus and carrot strips as well as the chili rings and pour over the dressing.

Put on a glove and mix everything well with your hand; lightly massage in the dressing.

Step 3

Fold in the coriander, season the salad to taste and, if necessary, season with tamari.

Step 4

Divide the papaya salad between 3 bowls, sprinkle with peanuts and enjoy.

The colonic was one of the best experience I’ve ever had. Ela was absolutely fantastic. She is very gentle and really professional. I was feeling at ease knowing I was in perfect hands at that time. Later on I was given some good advice about a liver cleanse.
